The Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA) announced yesterday the appointment of nine independent members who will serve on the Authority from 1 October 2008 until June 2012.
Cindy Butts and Kirsten Hearn have been reappointed as independent members.
Reshard Auladin has been appointed as an independent member having previously served on the Authority as a magistrate member, a category that no longer exists.
Christopher Boothman, Dr Valerie Brasse, Neil Johnson, Clive Lawton, Deborah Regal and Graham Speed are newly appointed as independent members of the MPA.
Commenting on these appointments, Catherine Crawford, MPA Chief Executive, said she was “delighted to welcome our new independent members, each of whom brings valuable experience and expertise to their role with the Metropolitan Police Authority.”
“The success of the MPA depends on the abilities and dedication of its members. I know that our new members will be dedicated to the task of ensuring a fair and effective police service for all London’s communities and look forward to commencing their duties.”
Crawford also paid tribute “to the invaluable contribution of the current members who will be standing down at the end of September. Their dedicated work has helped to shape and improve policing in the capital.”
